A lifetime of smiles starts with a good foundation
Give your kids a great start building good oral hygiene habits and monitor their progress as they grow into their beautiful smiles. We understand how challenging and rewarding family care can be and kids need extra special consideration. Having a healthy smile is such an important part of childhood, let’s get them started on the right path with guidance that’s personalized for their needs.
Getting ready for your first appointment
Feel free to talk to your child about the upcoming trip to the dentist. The main purpose of your child’s first visit is to relax, have some fun, and start building a positive relationship with the dentist. Sometimes, not knowing what to expect can make people feel a little nervous. Here’s what your child can expect during their first appointment:
Talk and Listen
We will talk to you and your child, explain what we’re going to do and why and familiarize your child with some of the tools we use. We speak in kid-friendly language and explain any lingo so they can feel as comfortable and assured as possible. See! We’re not so scary after all.
We will gently examine your child’s gums, tongue, teeth and overall health. Our exam will uncover any areas of concern or tricky spots that may need some extra attention at home. We will provide you with personalized guidance and make a note to pay special attention to those spots during the next appointment.
We might ask your child to show us how they brush their teeth and then give them gentle instructions on how to improve brushing their teeth at home. We would love to answer any questions you or your child have about dental health.

to schedule an initial consultation & exam.
Your consultation will include an examination of everything from your teeth, gums and soft tissues to the shape and condition of your bite. Generally, we want to see how your whole mouth looks and functions. Before we plan your treatment we want to know everything about the health and aesthetic of your smile, and, most importantly, what you want to achieve so we can help you get there.

What Our Patients are Saying
Great, brand new office. I was very happy with the treatment I received from Dr. Zina. Very clean and they also had viral filters to remove all the viruses from the room. Thank you for helping me and my family.
I came in here before thanksgiving because I had horrible pain in my mouth and it was a month's wait at my usual dentist. I had been in so much pain, it literally hurt to laugh, smile, eat and yawn. I called and I was able to get an appointment that day! I saw Dr. Lubna when I came in and she did an exam and determined I had a severe mouth infection, she prescribed me an antibiotic and I felt SO MUCH better within 24 hours. I am so thankful to Viva Dental Cambridge for being able to get me in so quickly and fix my issue right away.
I am so happy to have found this place. I live on Hespeler Road and this place is so convenient to get to. Also, the front desk was very pleasant to deal with. Dr. Zina was very nice and she walked me through my procedure. Very comfortable and good experience. I have referred my family to this place.
